The Potential of Phosphorus Removal in UASB Reactor
The potential of phosphorus removal rate was investigated using a lab scale UASB reactor The volumetric phosphorus removal rate was up to 20 mgP/L•d, and the phosphorus effluent concentration was below 0.5 mgP/L under high organic loading rate. Biological phosphorus assimilation could be the main pathways of phosphorus removal in UASB reactor, and the organic loading rate could be the main factor affecting phosphorus removal.
